Dennis Spielman with Sydney McFerron of Whatcha Makin Podcast

Whatcha Makin Uncovering Oklahoma

Back on May 12, I was invited to The Spy FM studios to be a guest on the Whatcha Makin Podcast hosted by Sydney McFerron. Today, the episode has been released!

“On today’s episode, Dennis Spielman of Uncovering Oklahoma and I discuss how Oklahoma is no longer a fly over state. We talk about what cool things are here and what cool things are coming. Something that I think we forget sometimes is that we are responsible for the cool things in Oklahoma. Locals are the ones who have stepped up over and over with crazy ideas and a drive to make them happen. We’ve got a good thing here.”

Listen to the episode anywhere you get your podcasts! Be sure to check out previous episodes for more stories on creative people making cool things.

Red Rooster

After a year of undergoing a complete makeover, the Red Rooster has returned with full-strength beer, wine, and cocktails alongside a regional and international influenced food menu.

The ownership team of Holey Rollers, a coffee and donut shop located just a block from Red Rooster, agreed to assume control of the Red Rooster in 2018 for the stated purpose of restoring the brand to its former importance to the Paseo neighborhood and as an iconic Oklahoma City bar and grill.

The bar program focuses on classic pre-Prohibition cocktails such as Old Fashioneds, French 75s, Manhattans and Martinis and are prepared according to traditional methods.

The Red Rooster is located on the corner of Walker Avenue and 30th at 3100 North Walker Avenue. For more information, visit their website at

Chisholm Creek Rooftop Hop

Watch happy hour turn to the golden hour while OkSessions fills the air with live music. For 5 consecutive Tuesday evenings, come out after work to enjoy a variety of food, views, drinks, and music in Chisholm Creek. The Rooftop Hop features jazz, hip-hop, R&B, pop, acoustic, and gospel musicians working together to put on a mini music festival right in one of OKC’s most exciting new entertainment district.

I recorded this video yesterday, which was the second rooftop hop event. I wasn’t able to make it to the first one as I was at Startup Grind OKC. Another filmmaker made a fantastic video of the first night and for a moment a voice inside my head told me that I couldn’t do better than that, but then another voice said, “be different then.” I came up with the idea of doing this five facts video and happy with it.

Due to the weather, my filming schedule got moved around this week. I decided to publish this video today and I have an interview tomorrow that I’ll release on Friday, so you’ll be getting two Uncovering Oklahoma videos this week.

Go check out the Rooftop Hop while you can! The live music for the event can be found at Birra Birra, Chalk, Sidecar, and Topgolf.

3Sixty Restaurant & Bar

Located on the 20th Floor of Founders Tower, 3Sixty Restaurant & Bar provides beautiful views of Oklahoma City in a dinning environment where you can decide on the experience you want.

Monday was my first time visiting this place as I was invited for their two year anniversary party. I had a great time visiting with my other media friends and sampling some of their new menu. I’ll have to go back and try some other items.

3Sixty Restaurant & Bar is located at 5900 Mosteller Drive in Oklahoma City. For more information, including hours and menu, visit their website at
